Our in-person services on Sundays at 10:30 a.m. include live singing, a sermon, communion, and other familiar parts of the order of worship.

We want everyone to feel safe. Our COVID-19 protocols are based on recommendations from the CDC, the Bishop, and the Virginia Conference. Here are the COVID-19 practices we will follow this week:

  • Please enter through Door #1. We will check you off a list of attendees or add your name, email, and phone to the list.  Preregistration and temperature checks are no longer required. You may exit through any door.
  • Pews will be marked for social distancing. Please follow the ushers’ instructions.
  • We will have printed bulletins.
  • Offering plates will be in front; please leave your offering when you come forward for communion (we will continue to use the prepackaged communion packs). All undesignated offerings will go to the Operating Budget. If you would like to make a contribution to the Pastors’ Discretionary Fund or other designated fund, please use an envelope or make a notation on the memo line of your check. Giving envelopes and pencils will be in the pews.
  • Please maintain social distance if you are not sure of someone’s vaccination status.
  • Unvaccinated people 2 years old and up are required to wear masks at all times. Masks are optional for fully vaccinated people. We understand that going unmasked is still a new thing for many after more than a year wearing one: please feel free to do what makes you most comfortable.

We very much look forward to regathering for worship and we hope you will join us this Sunday at 10:30 a.m. If you aren’t yet ready to return to worship, or of course if you don’t feel well, please join us for the live-stream on Facebook and the website at 10:30 a.m. We will continue this schedule through the summer, introducing new elements as conditions allow, and consider an appropriate schedule moving forward as summer ends.

Join us for Morning Prayer, 8:30 a.m., Monday through Friday. Led by David King, who is now a student at Princeton, the morning prayer follows the liturgy from Brian Zahnd’s Prayer School. Find the Zoom link at www.annandalechurch.com/morningprayer or go to our Facebook page. You can download the liturgy at www.annandalechurch.com/morningliturgy. All are welcome to join us each weekday morning!

WORSHIP FOR ALL AGES

Although we’ve suspended activities in person because of the outbreak, Meredith has created an online Children’s Corner with Bible-based games, arts and crafts projects, educational resources, and more. There are two video lessons produced each week with the help of our Sunday School teachers – a pre-k lesson and a K-5 lesson. An email is sent on Fridays with the Youtube links to both of those videos. Each week parents also receive the links to the google drive folders for those specific lessons. This folder includes a family page and a coloring sheet each week for the pre-k kids, and pages which include mazes, coloring sheets, word searches, and other fun activities for K-5 kids. Zoom kid’s club meets from 9:30-9:50 a.m. on Sundays for 1st -5th graders. Two Sunday school teachers lead a time of fellowship and discussion about the week’s lesson. This zoom group is not recorded and parents can also opt to keep their video screen turned off if they prefer. For safety and security reasons, the Zoom link will not be posted anywhere but rather sent directly to the parents; contact Meredith at mbond@annandale-umc.org if you have not been added to the mailing list.

CURRENT WORSHIP SERIES

“The F Word: Gospel Freedom According to Galatians.” We live in a culture which defines freedom the way the Bible defines sin: complete autonomy. So what does true freedom look like? This summer, we will consider Paul’s Letter to the Galatians and what it means to receive God’s grace, to experience the freedom of the Gospel, and to respond in gratitude. This series will cover the nature of the Old Testament Law, the relationship between works and faith, the character of Christian community, and the reality of the hope found in Jesus Christ.
